Summary: I am the owner of several Samsung devices, including a "smart" TV, laptop computer and NexusGBLK mobile phone. Recently,and for the first time ever, I had to call upon Samsung to repair a product - the mobile phone which was still under the warranty. Two months after the phone was handed in for repairs and after endless chasing the non-responsive customer service centre, the message came back that the phone was, as per the decision of the Samsung Technicians, "liquid"...
Summary: phone is good. however all accesories including the battery and manual are either not from this model, defective or fake copies. The nfc antenna for this phone is supposed to come inside the battery. But since the battery supplied was either fake or defective the NFC wouldn't work. Had to buy a new battery at my expense.
Summary: Phone works great for my purpose. Others complain about the battery, but I have not experienced that issue. The updates are the reason that I got the phone. That and the 'no-bloatware' issue. Phone seems great, but my needs are not great, so not stressing all features.
Need a new phone without breaking the bank? Galaxy Nexus will do you good.

Summary: Snappy, even in 2013. Thanks to Android 4.3, the user interface is butter smooth (thanks to Project Butter), the screen is crisp, bright, and beautiful. Understated look, looks like a black slab when it's off because of no physical buttons as well.
Summary: Galaxy nexus is a really good phone for its price. I bought this phone about a week ago and I think it's great. Android 4.3 OS fits perfectly on this phone. feels like I'm using a galaxy s3 or even a iphone 4s for the almost half the price! Oh yeah I never used the iphone 4s or the galaxy s3 but my friends have it and I try it like-- every day. The only thing that might be a bad thing is the battery life.
Summary: I cannot get past the problems with the charging port. My daughter and I actually both have this phone (for Verizon), and while the performance and features are wonderful, like many others you can find around the web, the charging port is horrible. We just get them in April, and have been through 5 different chargers. This is just sad. I'm sitting here with mine right now and cannot get it to charge at all.
